The Nedlloyd Houtman, a 2,450-TEU refrigerated containership is one of the first ships to be equipped with an alarm and monitoring system, serving engine-room, refrigeration plant, and cargo and using LSI (Large Scale Integrated) circuits, microprocessor techniques, and video displays. The system, which is based on the C.S.I. visual Alphaprom system, receives and processes signals from the sensors and as well as actuating visual and audible alarms, displays the data on a video screen, either on demand or when alarm levels are exceeded. Three separate installations are fitted and are described in some detail. Order from BSRA as No. 49,353.
